We had one goal. Make a guitar with everything you’d need to kickstart your guitar playing. Which is why the core elements of the LA electric are manufactured to our specific standards. So, you don’t have to worry about your guitar stopping you from playing what you want.
Note: In addition, we also source our woods sustainably. The LA electric does not contain woods from any exhausted or endangered sources. It is fully CITES compliant.
Explore any genre. The three single-coil pickups let you barrel through punk songs. Or you can dial them back and go clean, you’ll find a more pure sound that releases the calm of softer styles.
Get the exact sound you want from your pickups, through the five-way pickup selector switch. Which lets you choose from the neck, middle, and bridge pickup (and in between each of those). In the neck position, you’ll find a more full-bodied, percussive sound. In the bridge, a more aggressive, cutting tone. In the middle - a balance of the two. So it’s just right for lead or rhythm guitar parts.
Experiment even further with your sound thanks to the six-point tremolo. Just by pushing or pulling the tremolo arm, you’ll manipulate your guitar’s pitch.
Lightweight. Easy to Handle. Hardwearing. You’re going to use this thing, so we made sure it would keep up with you. The palownia wood body is just right. Even down to the contour along the back, so it sits comfortably. Or the double cutaway where the neck meets the body, letting you get high up the neck without anything getting in the way.
The 3/4 size, 22-fret neck is easy to get around too. Milled from a solid piece of maple and then polished smooth. Letting your hand reach each note easily. Combined with a slim ‘C’ shape neck – this is the easiest neck to learn on (especially if you have small hands!). It’s also got the standard dot inlays along the board, making it easier to navigate up and down.
Because learning needs a lot of practice, the fingerboard is built to last. It’s made from multiple layers of poplar, which means it’ll endure every chord, riff, and note you play on it, for years.
